Taxi drivers and racial discrimination
It seems like taxi drivers will often try to rip me off whenever I’ve traveled to the US. So here’s my theory. Based on the colour of my skin (I’m Chinese), taxi drivers instantly figure out that I’m not from their city because there aren’t a lot of Chinese people in it. I don’t think that the taxi drivers are trying to be racist. Rather, they’re trying to be city-ist… Continue reading

Robocop (or… let’s talk about the Reboot Cop movie)
Detroit is going bankrupt. But goddammit, it is getting a Robocop statue and the remake of Robocop is hitting theatres!
The picture above shows the unfinished Robocop statue that is currently a foam mold. It will eventually be turned into metal and placed somewhere in Detroit. It is the magic of Kickstarter at work.
The movie is just… Continue reading
Fantastic Four Controversy
They recently announced the cast for a Fantastic Four reboot. Some people were surprised at how soon after the last FF movie they were starting fresh. The reason is simple – just like with the Spider-Man franchise, the studio that currently has the movie rights for those characters needs to make a movie with them or the rights will revert to Marvel. The cast seems pretty young, but that’s because… Continue reading
My experience with shaving
So my dad never actually taught me how to shave. I don’t know why. He just didn’t. I never really had a lot of facial hair so I never bothered learning how to shave until 26.
Like most things in life, you can look it up on Microsoft Bing Google. I first tried the “correct” way of shaving. But eventually… Continue reading
The Collected Comics Conundrum
I’m a total Marvel zombie so you might want to take that into consideration while reading this week’s Grumble. This isn’t to say that I don’t like DC comics, or any of the other companies. In fact, there are some DC titles in particular that I’ve been very interested in at various times. For instance, I was very interested in the Green Lantern Blackest Night storyline. In fact, I was… Continue reading

“Welcome to Gotham, bitch!”
Last week I bitched and moaned about a popular TV show not living up to expectations. This week, I’m writing about a TV show that is setting up some pretty high expectations without a single frame of it having been shot. Some time ago, it was announced that a TV series about the Gotham City police force was in the works. Basically, a cop procedural show in Batman’s hometown minus… Continue reading

Ice sucks round 2
This winter, Toronto has had two major weather events. The first was the freezing rain madness. The freezing rain on all the trees looked really pretty in the day time until the trees started falling down onto cars and power lines. At night a lot of the street lights were off and the city almost looked like a zombie apocalypse.
Apparently ice is my nemesis because I had… Continue reading
